Sleep apnea is disordered breathing and needs to be treated if it is present. Many people are not aware of the signs and symptoms of sleep apnea and its consequences.  This course will explain the types of sleep apnea, its causes, signs, and symptoms in an easy-to-understand format. 

Learn the different types of sleep apnea.  Gain knowledge of the risk factors and symptoms that exist with sleep apnea and understand the importance of getting the correct treatment.  Practice basic exercises that can be done to improve the strength of the tongue and airway dilators.  This course is evidence-based and will provide the latest research that is available on the statistics, risks, symptoms, and treatments for sleep apnea.
